Rockstar Games have revealed that the Diamond Casino and Resort has had a new shipment of diamonds in GTA Online and here’s how to get them in a heist. 

For years, GTA players questioned Rockstar about whether or not they would be able to swing open the doors on the Casino that sits by the racetrack in North Vinewood. In July, the developers finally made it possible with the introduction of the Diamond Casino and Resort.

The gaming paradise has been nothing short of a success for Rockstar as it has helped breathe new life into GTA Online, with player counts seeing a huge increase. Though, one other question remained  – would players be able to rob the Casino? The Diamond Casino Heist was then made available in December, but there was one thing missing – the ability to steal diamonds.

GTA players have the option of doing their heist quietly or forcefully.

Rockstar changed that on February 13, 2020, with the introduction of Diamonds as an asset to the heist. To make things better, the spawn rates on the stealable goods were altered, making it easier to get diamonds. The first event lasted between February 13 to February 20, although they are now back! 

If you’ve never completed the heist before, the first attempt at the heist will see the game nudge towards diamonds being your target instead of the cash, gold, and artwork options. The diamonds are incredibly lucrative if you get alive with them as the biggest payout is over $3 million – though, that will have to be split with your team. 

Though, if you have completed the heist before, it is still seemingly possible to get your hands on the mega payout. As of the game’s March 18 update, Diamonds are once again available to loot in the Casino heist – so get hacking and cracking in GTA Online.

How to get diamonds more than once in GTA Online’s Casino heist

Just because getting the diamonds for a second time is only a small chance, that doesn’t mean that it is impossible.

GTA YouTuber MrBossFTW showcased a method that can trigger them again, though you will have had to complete the heist one each of the robbery options – Stealthy, The Big Con, and Aggressive. 

Completing each of these options will give you the chance to cancel a heist by calling Lester if you don’t get the vault contents that you’re looking for. It’ll cost you $25,000 each time you cancel because that is the set-up fee, but you can seemingly get diamonds again by re-rolling on what the game might offer up.

Of course, it might be a case of trial and error for you, meaning that it might take a few tries to trigger the diamonds again, but it still possible to grab them a second time.

It is unknown if the percentage chance of grabbing them will shrink even further once the event ends, so it’s probably best to try it before Rockstar make them unavailable to find again. Anyway, best of luck!

It’s time for your GTA 5 Halloween update patch notes. For the spooky season, we will see the return of those pesky Peyote Plants, an expensive Casino car you can get for free, limited time game mode cash boosts – and much more! 

It seems like GTA 6 is years away at this point, so these weekly updates for GTA Online will help to keep the game fresh and keep its large player base more than satisfied.

Information for the newest GTA Online update has leaked ahead of time as usual – thanks to Twitter’s TezFunz2 – and it means we can present all the information to you now.

Here’s everything you need to know about this week’s GTA 5 Halloween update patch notes.

GTA Online October 22 update: Patch notes

Casino rewards vehicle

The S80RR in GTA V
Rockstar Games
This sparkling beauty is now yours. Enjoy.

The standout selection of the new content is of course the S80RR. Classed as a ‘Super’ car, this bad boy would normally set you back about $2,500,000.

According to the GTA Wiki website: “The S80RR was designed to do two things. First, to be the predominant endurance racer of its era. Second, to make so few concessions to the physical comfort and psychological wellbeing of the driver that getting as far as the end of your driveway risks multiple organ failure, an irrecoverable nervous breakdown, and absolutely no regrets whatsoever.”

So spin that wheel, and get yourself behind the wheel.
